Hello, First I would like to say how wonderful these forums are. This community has already helped me so much that I had to finally sign up. I look forward to participating in discussions moving forward. Today I have a question of my own. I have worked with SCCM for a few years now doing OSD and package deployment and just began building my first SCCM 2007 server at a new company. I took a class dedicated to SCCM 2007 and thought I asked all the right questions but want to verify my migration from SMS 2003 to SCCM 2007 is sound. All Windows XP machines are deployed and managed by SMS2003 at a single AD site. My plan has been to deploy Windows 7 and thus SCCM 2007 configmgr through SCCM2007. As we migrate to Win7 so will the client agents. So I will NOT be upgrading the SMS2003 clients, and the SMS server is NOT a child of the SCCM server (I don’t need any data from it). Both servers have a different site code so as far as I am concerned they are two completely separate environments (which is what I prefer). The only issue I could see is both servers share the same site boundary. The schema in AD has been extended for both SMS and SCCM. I only push the client out during the OSD deployment so they do get the correct site code automatically. The clients get approved automatically (I have had an issue with one or two in testing so far). Will SMS or SCCM clients have unstable communication? It will be difficult to create separate sites as we need to deploy Win7 to test users in different subnets that will overlap with SMS clients. I would prefer not to migrate the winXP machines to the SMS 2007 server. The entire migration should be complete in 6 months. Thank you for your time, Rick
